8-week support group for teen adoptees
This support group is primarily designed to create a safe & supportive environment for adopted teens (ages13 to17) to engage with their story alongside fellow adoptees.
The group will use C.A.S.E.'s (Center for Adoption Support and Education) book, Beneath the Mask: For Teen Adoptees*, as a framework for each meeting.
During this 8-week session, teens will:
Explore the 7 Core Issues of Adoption
Learn better ways to answer other’s adoption-related questions (even insensitive ones).
Have an opportunity to process their personal adoption journey and hear from one another in a supportive and collaborative way.
We all share the reality of adoption being a life-long journey, so let’s walk the journey together. Comfortability with reading and sharing in front of the group is highly encouraged but not mandatory.
*Participants do not need this book to attend.
